Chummer Build 490 Available

Build 490

  • corrected how Essence information is stored in regions that use something other than "." to separate decimal places would cause an error to be thrown
  • fixed an issue where ammoreplace values for Weapons were not being handled correctly
  • added an Option on the Miscellaneous tab: Karma cost for increasing Special Attributes is reduced with Essence Loss (see below)

Karma cost for increasing Special Attributes is reduced with Essence Loss
When the option is enabled, the Essence cost to improve MAG or RES is affected by Essence Loss. For example, the character an Essence Penalty of 1 and MAG of 3. Normally, Chummer calculates the cost based on its perceived MAG value of 4 (MAG 4 - Essence Penalty 1 = 3), meaning the cost of improving MAG would be for going from MAG 4 to MAG 5. With this option enabled, Chummer instead calculates the cost based on the shown value of 3, meaning the cost of improving MAG would be for going from MAG 3 to MAG 4. This only impacts Career Mode.

Build 484

  • added support for <essencemax /> to the Improvement Manager which increases the character's maximum Essence
  • changed the Essence Custom Improvement to only affect the current value of the character's Essence as intended
  • characters now record their Essence when MAG/RES is added to them and use that point to determine Essence Penalties instead of basing it on the Metatype's maximum Essence value (corrects issues for Latent Technomancer/Latent Awakening)

  • changed how Weapons calculate their Ammo capacity to correct an issue with adding the Extended Clip Weapon Mod to Weapons that have multiple clips
